How to Delete a Table in phpMyAdmin

Step 1: Log in to phpMyAdmin with your credentials.

Step 2: On the left-hand side of the screen, you'll see a blue window. In this window, you will find the name of your database along with the names of the tables beneath it. For this tutorial, let's assume you have a database with multiple tables.

Step 3: To delete a table, start by selecting the specific table you wish to delete. You can do this by clicking on the table name in the blue window. Clicking on the table name will display the table's data in the larger window on the right-hand side of the screen.

Step 4: In the displayed table data, you'll see a list of fields that are part of the table. To delete individual fields from the table, select the checkboxes at the beginning of each field. After selecting the fields you want to delete, you can click on the "Delete" icon. This icon is usually represented as a large red "X." Clicking on it will delete the selected fields.

Step 5: If you want to delete the entire table along with all its contents, look at the menu at the top of the white screen and find the "Drop" button.

Step 6: Click on the "Drop" button. A pop-up confirmation dialog will appear to ensure that you really want to drop the table.

Step 7: If you are sure you want to delete the table, click on the "OK" button to confirm your action. The screen will now display a confirmation message indicating that the table has been dropped. After this, the table will no longer be listed in the database's tables in the blue window on the left.

Step 8: To return to the main screen, simply click on the "Home" icon located on the left-hand side of the screen.
